to see you guys. let's talk about this first, this is a very serious matter. you've got dennis kucinich among other lawmakers who are saying there need to be impeachment proceedings because the president didn't consult with, get a vote from congress, avery, before proceeding with this military engagement. does that kind of challenge stand a chance? >> well, i think actually dennis -- his tooth is still hurting from that tuna wrap lawsuit that he had. >> stop it. >> but honestly, he's a purist, he's an anti-war guy. the fact is that there is the 1973 war powers act, and it authorizes the president to take military action as long as he consults with congress within 60 days. the fact is allied forces are taking over our activity involving libya today we'll never get to the 60 days. however, the good thing is that president obama did consult with congress yesterday. it's a little bit of pretzelized thinking but i understand because dennis and dennis. >> the president will be addressing the american people monday, too. first, let's hear -- let's hear what dennis kucinich had to say in his ow

should be impeached pore it but he said that. i think the question that dennis kucinich is holding that i think is of interest to a lot of people. john boehner has said the same thing -- what is the end game in libya for the president? and i earlier you said to me, it's not really the end game we're worried about. we need to know what's going on in the second quarter. >> dennis, first, the second quarter next. he as always is an honest man, a good man and he's right. and it's irrelevant. in this sense, the united states, the last time we were engaged in a constitutionally-declared war was world war ii. if we had followed cues initch's prescriptions, we would not have been in korea, in vietnam or in iraq and so on. the fact is for a very long time, the peerial presidency in the hands of both democrats and republicans, has operated the way they feel like operatinged on the basis of urgency. so it's a good point he makes, but probably not relevant. much more relevant is the second point, if the u.s. is engaged with some consultation with congress, with the president saying it's necessary for

in libya. start dialing in now. let me begin with a story on dennis kucinich is quoted, "i'm raising the question as to whether or not it is an impeachable offense." "we have to clearly understand what this constitution is about." that is from dennis kucinich in an exclusive story. he has also been tweeting about this. this is a tweet from yesterday. that was a sweet -- a tweet from dennis kucinich. this is "the new york times" on this story. it says that "president obama is facing criticism for not seeking congressional authorization." a quote from president obama in 2007 with "the boston globe." he talks about a presidential constitutional authority to declare war. back then, he said "the president does not have the power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation." that is a quote from then senator obama in "the boston globe." it also talks about then senator joe biden. he argued that the prison would not have authority under the constitution to bomb iranian nuc

. >> for instance, charlie rangel much new york and dennis kucinich and progressives that say, hey, wait a minute, mr. president you can't do this and essentially declare war on them without asking congress. they're a little upset. >> it is true and unique to go to the u.n. security council first. >> let's bring in student colonel tony schaeffer and can we look at the quote from vice-admiral william courtney and we want your i am presentation of the sound bite. >> i want to stress, however, this is just the first phase of what will likely be a multi-phrase military operation designed to enforce the united nations resolution and deny the libyan regime the ability to use force against the libyan people. tism we're creating the position to be able to set up the no-fly zone and once we establish and confirm that it's right, move into the next phases of the campaign. >> and colonel, what does it mean? >> what is the the end state, ultimate regime change? we've now involved ourselves in the chaos, what if? what i'm thinking is being said here, if we have clear capability and let me say what we should d

, democratic congressman dennis kucinich speaks out. he wants to ban all funding from u.s. operations in that country. we ask him why live. nuclear mistake. operators say a strike in radioactivity that prompted evacuation wasn't accurate. after an error like that, can information from japan about the nuclear reactors be trusted? budget battle. at the beginning of the 112 congress, two freshmen from opposite sides of the aisle promise to work together but with another budget battle looming, can they do it? we talk to the two lawmakers again live. all of that, plus a scandal involving the new york city fire department. should the city be forced to pay money to those who couldn't pass the entrance exam? i'm breech breech and america's news headquarters from the nation's capital starts right now -- i'm shannon bream and america's news headquarters from the nation's capital starts right now. we begin in japan. the spike in radiation level that led to evacuation was just a mistake. we have the latest. >> reporter: it was a breach coming from the authorities this sunday and we heard an offic

an authorization of force. representative dennis kucinich is pushing for a resolution to stop all action in libya, even going as far as saying this may have been an impeachable offense. so, the question, how soon will all of this be over? secretary of state clinton in an interview on abc says it looks like gadhafi may want out, that some in his inner circle are reaching out to find ways out. top advisers wondering whether or not they can bring this to an end. lynn? >> thanks so much. >>> well, despite the president's exit strategy in libya, some are still wary of u.s. involvement in a long, drawn out conflict in libya. last night on "the rachel mad dough" show she asked gid yan rose for possible scenarios about how the situation in libya could play out. >> essentially at this point, there are only three options. either we climb down from our goals, and let gadhafi come back and take over, which we're not going to do because it would be humiliating, devastating and violate the reason we went in in the first place. or we essentially achieved the stated initial mission, which is to protect the rebel

out who people are on principle. the dennis kucinich group, i mean they're still anti-war and very consistent anti-war but then there are others that actually i was pretty disappointed. i just assumed they would be with us then have not been. tavis: i know have you to run to a vote. three quick questions right quick. number one, is there going to be a budget shutdown over this budget destpwhate >> well, have i been predicting at there won't be but i'm not betting any money on it. it's a pretty messy business. but don't think it's in anybody's interest, political interest, to allow that to happen than it would be zwroust become blame game. so my guess is something will become of it but i guess we have to wait and see. i'm not on the inside of those decisions. all i know is i oppose spending because i feared big spending and deficits for a long, long time and argued the case we would get into a financial crisis if we didn't get our house in order. so i only can speak for myself but i will not support any spending bills that continue this process. tavis: my final two questions, number
